The Spurs home hypothesis : Bus…………….+ resilience…………..x up us……………..= typical spurs game Carelessnes……………...poor selection……….slow brains So, turns out Sunderland was a perfect dress rehearsal, only difference was Sheff Utd were better. The formula delivered the usual result. They dug in, looked to counter or capitalise on set pieces, while we huffed and puffed and what very few situations we developed were wasted with carelessness or ineptitude. Don't like the two striker system, don't like Adebayor and Kane together, too samey samey, as a "9" Kane's hustle and bustle and slight blinkered directness can be a good thing, in the "10" position (or as the ALM where he switched to for a spekll first half) it just becomes clumsy and irritating as he tries to bulldoze through legs and bodies, invariably ending in dead ends. He is not a "10", he's a "9", so stop doing it Mopo. We effectively sacrificed a creator or at least different attacking angle for two samey samey fuckers, cluttering up the same central spaces with their different flavours of clumsy. He didn't have a great night but the people that booed Adebayor are fuckwits. He did try and he may be here for the rest of the season, booing him isn't going to get the best out of him and we may need him. Townsend once again delivered the square route of fuck all, for all he saw of the ball, and is the worst player and biggest coward I have seen without the ball. When we don't have the ball he is an utter liability and refuses to press properly, sometimes when others are trying to, and this just allowed them out of the trap and kills any hope of winning the ball high up. You either all do it or it's pointless as it becomes counter productive. Mason was awful tonight. The game seemed to evade him for big spells, especially second half, and him getting yanked off is becoming a habit. Not involved enough, It's pointless passing forward if all you do is whack it at people who have a man up their arses. I was unconvinced from the get go with Mason, I just didn't think he was delivering what he should be to pay the compromise but the last few games (prior to injury) I'm getting more ad more convinced he's not the answer. The first two subs made some kind of sense, but Paulinho for Stambouli was a bit puzzling.The positive is we took a win out of another grind. Individual: Vorm - OK Walker - Walker Dier - Good game, best in a Spurs shirt so far. Showed aggression, tenacity and confidence on the ball at times. Liking what I see so far. Vertonghen - Good game, great ball for the pen Davies - Was exposed but didn't have a great game and made a couple of poor mistakes that could have cost. Stambouli - Worked very hard and had a pretty decent game. Mason - Poor game. Careless with the ball and disappeared second half. Townsend - Townsend Kane - Tried but was clumsy and wasteful. Eriksen - Tried but nothing quite came off. Adebayor - tried but looks really out of sorts. Poor touch often.
